A Few Cover Letter Examples

Here are some cover letters examples of references from jobseekers. These are examples, but all names are fools. These letters have one thing in common: they conducted all the interviews and some candidates were hired.

As a rule, a letter of application should be short and precise. Matching is one of the most important roles of a hiring manager. In other words, he needs to know exactly what you want before he knows what to do with your application. It’s easy when you respond to a job advertisement. However, if you proactively contact an employer or a headhunter, you must specify what you want.

You must state what you want, highlight your professional skills and experience and request an interview, all in a short cover letter. In fact, most hiring managers spend only 20 seconds reading a cover letter. In a short letter, every word counts. Every word should provide added value. Never write long sentences and of course no nonsense.

Let’s go over a few examples that cover different scenarios.
